(For those of you who concern me in the sense that you haven't figured it out already, it was the Skulduggery Party. That was the answer. I made that one obvious.)
This was the third annual party for Derek's birthday and Skulduggery's deathday, and I think it's fair to say this year bumped the standards up a bit.
There were twenty people. I didn't even know I KNEW that many people. Have you ever had a party with twenty Skulduggery Pleasant fans dressed as characters? Because it's interesting.
|Here we've got the whole group of us, all making somewhat normal faces...|
Here, have some normal party weird stuff.
Some casual conversation between (not) normal book characters
Argeddion trying to convert some people into agreeing with the Summer of Light as a good thing. They aren't really buying it.
Madame Mist is probably trying to plot against the rest of us
Tanith is pretty sure there was a Remnant in that cup and that's how she actually got possessed
|Eliza Scorn may or may not have acquired a cell phone for the sake of bringing people into the Church of the Faceless. Also, she likes to play games on it.|
|Madame Mist in her creepy spidery spider stuff... (And this was Fabi, from the Blog!)|
|Argeddion is trying to turn the mortals into sorcerers with the Summer of Light.|
|My evil reflection with the Sceptre of the Ancients and her eye gouged out from the other dimension (who is still plotting to kill me).|
|Skulduggery Pleasant, gun in hand and facade on.|
|Sabine looked exactly like Sabine on the TMS poster and I'm still trying to understand how this was possible.|
|Clarabelle probably just drew a smiley face on the Engineer.|
|China Sorrows, the classiest and most sane person of the whole thing.|
|The only OC of the whole thing, Kyra.|
|Darquesse/Val, as a Bride of the Blood Tears|
(That's me. Because I'm Val. As always).
|Eliza Scorn and Melancholia are sticking to character pretty well. Eliza's plotting against China but doesn't look like it, and Melancholia hates everyone.|
So, that was the party! It was more exciting than I'm making it sound. The odd one-liners that came out of those five hours or so are things that should not exist but do. It was fun.
And I think I made it pretty obvious - we're all insane.

Also, 20 awkward selfies. They're necessary. And I'm pretty sure at least half of us have "0012345666" in our contacts now.
You really need to get yourself to Seattle, Derek.
